American Idol: Best Quotes

2011-01-24 07:55
Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez are noobies on the American Idol panel. How do you think they're doing as judges, especially without veteran Simon Cowell?

Let's take a look at some of their more memorable quotes from the first week of auditions to see how they're holding up.

Steven Tyler
Mr Aerosmith seemed a little more interested in assets than actual talent.

[to a contestant with metal stars on her bra top] - "What's with the jujubees on your oohoohbees?"

"An Italian with tattoos, I love you already... Where is your pitchfork, you little devil?"

[to a teen in a short skirt] - "Just the right amount showing. That's nice."

And every once in a while, he'd open his ears...

[confessing to a really bad singer] - "You got so much of the drama and all that, but you got no notes."

"From my melodic sensibility, it was really delicious."

And then he went all Paula on us...

"I know why you're here. And we're all here, cause we're not all there."

Jennifer Lopez
J.Lo has a heart of gold - she just can't say no! In the first week alone the judges have handed out over 70 golden tickets.

[on having to be mean] - "Why did I sign up for this?! I wanna go home!"

[on the Britney-obsessed contestant Ashley Sullivan] - "She's out of her mind, but I love it."

Aaw, she tries so hard to let them down gently...

[to a bad singer from the Ivory Coast] - "It's not about your accent, it's more really just about the singing."

[to Steven, during a bad audition] - "Make him stop. Do it."

And sometimes she just pulled rank over the other judges...

Randy: "Should we vote?" Jennifer: "No. Hollywood. Bye!"

What did you think of the new additions to the American Idol judging panel? Now that Simon is out, who's going to take over as the mean one? Let us know!
